IPA Before Using Waxes Or Sealants

Hello everyone! I'm not sure if it's the right forum section, my apologies if it's not. How effective are homemade Isopropyl Alcohol solutions at removing older waxes or sealants prior to applying new coats on? What percentage of IPA to water do you guys use? Thanks

They arent really efective at removing old waxes and sealants. Sometimes they will actually remove some build up gloss enhancers or other shampoo residue and sort of revive the wax / sealant you have applied.
If you are using the same wax / sealant then it isnt an issue...just IPA wipe it and apply the wax / sealant. If you want to try something new I suggest you polish the car with whichever polish / paint cleanser before applying new wax / sealant.
IPA is typically used to remove polish residue. Use it at 15-30% IPA mixed with water.
